On Adobe CC Announcements: What you need to know article (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

Prognathous: The only thing you need to know: the $10 photography bundle is a trap.

Quote from Adobe's membership contract:

"The price of your one-year commitment (as reflected in the monthly installment amounts) may change for your next annual renewal, and we’ll provide you notice of a change by email"

In short, nothing but a teaser price. Get ready to pay through the nose as soon as you've created enough project files and can't properly open them by anything else. Good luck being Adobe's hostage.

CS6 and below are NOT perpetually licensed...if their activation server goes down or they stop the server, then you are SOL...unless you have other means to do so.

On Olympus Tough TG-3 real-world samples gallery article (42 comments in total)

I have the TG-1...it is perfect for diving and having fun. For so-called "regular" shots, it does hve its drawbacks. But if you shoot with some negative EV and are willing to do some editing later, you have a good package. For its intented use it is superative, but expect to edit. I am thinking of upgrading to the TG-3 actually.

On Blood moon eclipse: Night of April 14-15 article (64 comments in total)

My camera does not have a "Moon" mode. Can I attempt this endeavor with any chance of success? There is an "M" mode on my main dial...is this "Moon" mode? It doesn't seem to do anything. Please advise.

On Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer article (628 comments in total)
In reply to:

newe: So...what is the best price for people to eliminate the complaints?

I have thought about this a bit...if I could get just photoshop cloud for $5 a month I would do that, with NO price increases. I may even sign a contract (like a cell) for 3 years.

Wonder why they don't do that?

So...how much are people really willing to spend on the PS for the cloud (why people think you lose your edits or your photos is just stupid...oh well). I said $5 a month for me..which is $60 a year. I realize I have no control over what Adobe does in the case of cloud, but for $5 why not. Just wondering what everyone's "cloud break even point is".

BTW, even with a physical box you still would need to activate PS..so you would still be at their mercy anyway.

On 10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren't Photoshop) article (450 comments in total)
In reply to:

dblues: Highly recommend Sagelight. At least try it. It is a 48 bit (16bit per channel) program. It's amazing what it can do, and it does everything very fast. It does not have layers or batch processing as of yet, but image manipulations and enhancements are amazing and as I said very fast.
Sagelight supports the following color spaces in the Power Curves and other modes:
•RGB
•XYZ
•C*I*E LAB
•Hunter LAB
•HSL
•HSB/HSV
•YCrCb
•C*I*E LCH
•C*I*E YXY
•C*I*E RGB
•C*I*E Hunter Lab
•C*I*E YCrCb

no color management though...

newe: People forget that all recent CS versions are cloud in that you must activate anyway...if you want to move to a new machine Adobe may say no anyway. I like what they did with CS2...they provided an activation free version this year. Perhaps they could do this for later versions eventually for those who do not want or cannot afford Adobe CC.

It most certainly did happen...not falsely reported:

yes I know...but my point was that Adobe could have shut you down any time they wanted anyway...just not every few months or so.

Corel is a good option....but it is "cloud" as well. You will need to activate it once (you will need some form of connection)...and if Corel goes under or decides to change then you are out of luck for a move to a new machine.

What we need is a reasonably featured package that can do color management with just a serial number-based activation...no internet EVER needed. Not sure who makes that.
